Channing Tatum Pulls The Pin On Sexual Abuse Film

Channing Tatum says he's no longer developing a film with The Weinstein Co that dealt with a boy dealing with the aftermath of sexual abuse.

On Wednesday Tatum said, via Instagram, that he will not be developing anything with Harvey Weinstein's former company, which has been embroiled in sexual harassment scandals over the past two weeks.

The film was to be based on author Matthew Quick's book Forgive Me Leonard Peacock.

Quick also wrote Silver Linings Playbook, which The Weinstein Co developed into a film that would win star Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar.

Tatum said now is a time to be reminded of the healing message of the book and says that this is an opportunity for real change.

He called for an elimination of abuse from creative culture.
